[SWATCHES] Etude House Drawing Show Creamy Pencils

Yay! These beautiful babies have washed ashore (lol) and are available @ Etude House in Singapore now for just $12.90! If you haven't already noticed, Etude House in Singapore is now under Amore Pacific (since a few months back) and they have adjusted the price to be more reasonable and closer to Korea's than before! And yep, these are part of Etude House's Lovely Doll Doll collection ^^


When swatched:


L-R:
BK801 Starry Night Black
BK802 Monster Black
BK803 Battle Grey
BR401 Chocolate Show
BR402 Dolly Brown
BE101 Moonlight Vanilla
BE102 Dolly Gold
PK101 Starlight Pink
RD301 Wine Bang Show
GR701 Wild Khaki

The RD301 is currently my fave! :) A really unique yet wearable colour.

I tried it at work today and here's a really simple review:
-Glides on REALLY smoothly!
-Great staying power without smudging onto lower lids!
-Great value for such a product! Really!
-Water resistant, meaning water-based makeup remover will not suffice.
-10 beautiful colours! Would buy all of them if I could!

Some stuff which I think could make the product better:
-Could have had a smudger on the other end rather than nothing at all! >.< The Face Shop's Make Me Star waterproof gel liner pencil has a smudger and I'm a happy user. I use my shiny pink one as an eyeshadow and I believe the same can be done with Etude's, only if it came with a smudger rubber tip thingy.
-Has to be sharpened constantly for defined lines which may be a bit inconvenient. The lead is soft so it gets blunt really fast.
-Because its a gel formula, it may dry up (not entirely though). I think it'll not be as smooth to glide on over time but I think sharpening it to remove the top layer should do the trick ;)

Do check them out! Definitely a great product yet again from Etude :)

Outing to Farmart

Hi~

Met Angie for a bonding day awhile ago. Supposingly we went to the River Safari because Angie had free tix, but we ended up at Farmart because the tix were expired. The trip to Farmart totally savaged the day!

The place is easily accessible by taking a shuttle bus ($1 each way) that comes every 30 mins, opposite Choa Chu Kang Lot 1. It was an eye-opener for me. It felt like Malaysia. Lol.


There was a pet food store cum pet hotel and I bought some food (vitakraft sticks & fish fillets) for my favourite neighbourhood cats. The pricing is slightly cheaper than town prices so I bought a bigger pack. The place mainly is a farm and food place, as online articles mentioned that they sell cheaper seafood but the stalls were mostly closed that day. There were also a bird shop and prawning area. The farm.. is really interesting.

There were super tamed parrots (or mini parrots lol)
Stacked tortoises
Creepy toads
Sleepy birds
We bought the feed while we were there. The $5 set was totally …

[SAMPLE REVIEW] Skinfood Salmon Eye Cream

Hi! I got this a sachet of Skinfood's Salmon Eye Cream with some Korean cosmetics, and only recently I felt like trying it :P

I know right! Salmon?! On your skin?! Well, that's Skinfood for you. Salmon is not as bad as.. CREAMY CHEESE MASK! Well, I like cheese in my food but not on my face. *squirms*




It does not smell one bit like salmon. Smells a lot like jasmine flowers, A LOT!!! An overly strong smell of jasmine, which is weird since salmon is used instead. *50 points deducted*


It's a white cream, which I feel is oily and fatty, and only a little is required. This sachet lasted me for 5 times, for both eyes! Not the best texture for an eye brightening cream. I believe this is gonna be bad for people with oily or problematic skin and may not be able to withstand the richness of this eye cream.

Stays really oily for at least 10 minutes, felt like the absorption was reeeaaalllyyy slow. Besides, I've used it for 5 times and there are no significant changes. No brighteni…

DIY blusher cushion with a finished compact

Hi!


I always wanted to buy a cushion blusher, seeing how convenient how cushion foundations are but I've never actually gotten down to get one seeing how expensive they were. The one that I wanted was an IOPE one cos it comes in a usual cushion compact with a mirror and it looks so easy to use! So I took out my finished cushion compacts (an Etude House Lock'n Summer one and an IOPE Air Cushion XP) and washed them really clean. Also, I found myself rarely using the Etude House Water Color cream blushes (I only tried the orange once and the rest were brand new and sealed.. man, the result of hoarding and forgetting what you have) because I don't know of a proper way to blend creamy blushes lol. I liked its colors and finish though; feels matte and smooth but it does not look overly powdery. The blushers are the right texture for the deed, so I used them for my DIY blusher cushion. P/s. this isn't exactly a tutorial as I think most people can do this without instructions,…
